Kagome Higurashi - Inuyasha
I mostly finished my Kagome (Inuyasha) costume for the Anime North Halloween Festival last month. I gave it a test run at the event and had a fun time. I need to replace the zipper in my skirt (I accidentally made the skirt a tad too big so I had to use a safety pin to tuck it in a bit) and Pan is going to help me style the Arda wig that I bought. The wig that I'm wearing here was one that I borrowed from Pan. I bought a bow kit from an eBay seller that I'm nearly finished working on now. It took me about a month of sewing, working for a little bit most evenings and a few hours on the weekend, to finish it.

I'm really glad that I was able to keep working on this even though my life has been very chaotic and challenging since my mother passed away in September. I learned how to sew from my mom and I wouldn't have gotten into Cosplay without everything she taught me. I'm happy, at least, that I'll continue to sew in the future so I can carry on with the skills that I learned from her.

My Kagome costume is actually my second time Cosplaying as this character. My mother and I worked on a Kagome costume for me back in 2002. It was my second ever costume back when wigs were optional (or were party quality). I've come along way with sewing and Cosplay since then and I'm very happy with my new Kagome costume.

As an aside, I don't post here on deviantART much anymore. I'm mostly active on Instagram now so if you would like to follow me to see new costume work as well as snapshots from my everyday life and my other interests, please follow me here: www.instagram.com/straywindcos…

Thanks to :iconpanatthedisco: for taking this photo of me on my iPhone during the event!

Just wanted to make a headliner post for the rest of the year regarding my planned conventions and Cosplay projects. I'll edit this journal throughout the year as I make plans to attend more events or work on costumes. If you would like to read about my convention and Cosplay experiences, check out my website here. I will continue to add new photos to my DA account when I get photos back from shoots, but I will no longer be writing detailed journal entries.

I now have an Instagram account. You can view it here.

Toronto ComiCON | Anime North | Fan Expo Canada | Toronto Fan Days Holiday Show

Rebecca P
Canada
I'm Rebecca, a Canadian Cosplayer without much artistic talent aside from some minor skill with hand and machine sewing. I love attending pop culture conventions and have been going to conventions in the Toronto area since 2001. I love to travel although I don't do it very much. I also love the themes and atmosphere of Halloween. October is one of my favourite times of the year because of the holiday. My love for Halloween has spilled over into the everyday as I enjoy watching horror movies and playing survival horror games. I work full-time as a general game designer/office assistant at an indie video game company that makes iPhone/iPad apps.

Current Residence: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Favourite genre of music: Rock, Electronic

I’m active on Instagram now actually. I don’t post on here anymore. I just pop in every once and a while. I made Sakura’s new school uniform from the new Card Captor Sakura Clear Card Anime over the spring and I’m really happy with how it came together. Not sure what I want to work on next. ^^
